Snow is coming – get your bowls out!
I’ve been sitting on this post for a year, waiting for an opportunity to post it. Guess what? We’re finally going to get some snow this weekend! We got a little bit of a dusting last weekend and Jake was so, so excited about it that I’m really hoping this weekend’s storm pans out so we can get in some good outside play time.
Cake batter is one of my favorite ice creams so I was excited to try a snow version. This worked out well – I’m pretty sure it’s going to be our go-to snow ice cream recipe!
Cake Batter Snow Ice Cream
(A Kate’s Recipe Box Original)
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
2/3 cup milk
Large bowl of snow
3 Tbsp. rainbow sprinkles
In a large bowl, whisk together the cake mix and milk until well combined. Stir in snow until you get an ice cream-like consistency. Fold in sprinkles. Serve immediately.
You know what the best part of today’s snow storm is? That most news outlets are calling it the “last” of the season. I have a feeling they’re just getting our hopes up to crush them with a late-March blizzard but instead of irresponsible reporting, I’m choosing to see it as optimism. I am over winter.
To be fair, we haven’t gotten that much snow this winter. Instead, we’ve been getting ice storms. I prefer snow.
I’m using the “last” storm today to do all the things I feel like I’ve been missing out on this winter – more snowman making, more cuddling under a blanket reading, more hot chocolate drinking while watching the flakes come down and, of course, more snow ice cream.
